MONTEGO BAY, St James — COLUMBUS Communications Jamaica Limited has partnered with the Business Process Industry Association of Jamaica (BPIAJ) to host the first of the quarterly HR Leaders Forum series which will be held tomorrow at Vista Print Jamaica, Barnett Tech Park, Montego Bay.

Founder and CEO of Great People Solutions, Lisa Soares- Lewis who will deliver the keynote address, is expected to deliberate on organisational development and employee engagement.

The forum, which will be held under the theme: "Building Partnership for Performance Excellence in Our Industry", is expected to present bold, innovative and viable solutions to HR- related issues and concerns, affecting the ICT-BPO industry.

Presenters will include experienced human resource executives Peta Gaye King, human resource manager, Integrity Services Solutions, formerly known as NARS; Debra Fraser, CEO of Caribbean HR Solutions and Makeba Bennett-Easy, VP of Organisational Development of Columbus Communications.

This latest partnership underscores Columbus's continued commitment to the BPO sector, having sponsored previous events staged by the industry, including last month's launch of the Engagement Centre for the Montego Bay Free Zone.

Julaire Hall, association manager of the BPIAJ is heartened by Columbus's sustained commitment to the sector.

"We believe that partnership within the industry and with key stakeholders and other relevant entities will give a big boost to our efforts to tackle the challenges of attracting, developing, improving and retaining quality talent for the ICT/BPO industry," Hall stated.

The BPIAJ is the national representative body for the information, communications technology and business process outsourcing industry.
